Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop

 


Welcome to the July GSF Blog Hop!

This months theme is Recipes. I have been playing with the Sweet as a Peach Suite of products and thought it might be fun to make my own bath salts to put in the cute little jars that came with this suite. Sara Douglas did this and gave us the ingredients but not the amounts. So I went on an internet search and tracked down the correct amounts. It was really hard to get the peach color the way I wanted is. I practically pulverized the salts into a more of a powder in my efforts to achieve this color. Take my advise and use Coarse Himalayan  Sea Salt and leave it the only color you add for the peach color. But this recipe is not quite ready for sharing ( I haven't tried it out yet, LOL). But the adventure was still kind of fun and I would like to find a Christmas version for the 1craft fair I will do this year.


Y'all know how much I love making boxes. So, I made a Calypso Coral box to fit these little jars. Trimmed it with the You're A Peach Designer Series Paper (DSP). Then tied a Pale Papaya Ribbon around it. The jar lid has a Pear Pizzazz Scalloped Circle mat with a DSP circle on top. When I finished that I made a Gift Card Holder to go with the Bath Salts gift. If you have never stamped with a Stampin' Up! distINKtive stamp set, you need to! The amount of detail you get with these stamps is amazing. 

Now it is time to hop over to Rachel's blog and take a look at the fabulous inspiration she has for you this month.

  1. I love this coordinating set! I wanted to get this entire Suite Collection, but it went on backorder so quickly. I've been waiting for the whole thing to come back in stock. It's such a refreshing color combo, nice and crisp and cool for summer! Thanks for sharing :-D
